If you want a great cocktails, and are fed up with those piddly assed tiny glasses then this is the place to go, 16oz cocktails with a giant sized welcome to go with it. Free live music is often the case and you will not be disappointed with either.

We found Blondie's Bar while waiting to start our Food Tour of Mission District. While we just had a drink or two late afternoon, we found service to be very good. The knowledge of the Bar Staff on various craft beers and drinks available. The Cocktail menu looked awesome so would have loved to come back at night with music.... More

A local took us to this bar and we had a hell of a good Sunday nite. Sat at the bar, good beer on tap and after the band kicked off the place came alive. Plenty of characters and some great moves happening on the dance floor. Spent 3 pleasant hours 😀😀

Tim was the worst bouncer! I just turned 21 and I'm spending my birthday in San Francisco so we were walking down the street and decided to enter this place. However, Tim wouldn't let us in cause he couldn't understand our ID. He refused to call the manager and he didn't even try to understand that "enero" is "January" for... More

Great bar. Nice bartenders. Just order my usual Anchor steam. As it was a Monday it was pretty quiet but yet all the chairs we're taken. I just love the dim lighting..

Serious serious 16oz martinis - but was ignored at the bar for some time. Probably thought we were too old for the scene. Local crowd watching the warriors in the NBA finals. After we finally got served it was worth the wait - drinks fab although would have been nicer with a smile !!!!! left a small tip

Had a great time with some smokin' blues Sunday night. (Not those _sad_ blues, nor those _mad_ blues, but some awesome toe-tapping, hip-shaking, head-scratching rocking out blues!) Mind the drinks, they go best with a walk... Or an Uber. :^)

If you happen to be in San Francisco and love martinis Blondie's Bar is the place to be. I visited the place on a Sunday afternoon. Everyone there was having a martini! They have so many different kinds from sweet to sour to you name it they have it. You can even customize your own drink. The bartender is very... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
